Beautiful Beyonce and her twins - The interesting story behind her dramatic dress

Bey has since stepped out looking more fantastic than ever. Looking absolutely awesome in her flowing gown, there's actually a surprising back story to her dress.

Not only is it menswear (yes, really), Beyoncé ordered the vintage silk organza frock from designer Alejandro before she was even pregnant.

Palomo adds that the piece is particularly significant because his label "celebrates the dismantling of gender norms": in his Spring 2017 lookbook, a man was wearing it. "Circa either the 1950s or the 1960s".

It turns out that Queen Bey was equally taken by the design, and placed an order, had it tailored to her measurements... and then learned she was expecting. "I thought, 'Oh my God, I am so in love with this fabric".

Reflecting on this turn of events, Alejando said: "We thought, OK, she won't wear it, oh well". "It had a midcentury quality - but we changed that", he explained.

So, like the rest of the world, Alejandro was stunned by Bey's Thursday night upload, but for slightly different reasons.

"A$3 esthetically and sexually, I have never felt that there should be clear distinctions between masculinity and femininity."
It's just really attractive. "It's a gown, now, that nearly has the shape of a big fur coat-sleeved and open".
